The Drew Young Band has been around in one form or another for the better part of 2 decades. Drew has been crisscrossing the globe soaking up stories and experiences and translating the human experience into songs of longing, love, loss and learning. Drew has been co/writing with some of the top writers across the globe and is constantly writing, touring and recording. During the Lockdown of 2020, with life of the road no longer an option, Drew began a comprehensive re-invention and spent a full year writing and recording music. It was at this time that Drew also realized that alcohol was no longer serving his life .” Hence, the name of the new Album “ Bourbon and Bad Decisions.” This decision has proven to be a huge creative win and the joys of sobriety continue to grow daily. A series of Nashville recording session, with some of the top session players in Music City, resulted in 60 completed songs. Drew has been releasing the songs as singles and to date there has been an aggregate of over 2 Million streams across his catalog and the numbers continue to grow.
Post COVID finds Drew ramping up his live appearances . With shows in New Orleans, Mississippi, Atlanta, New York and all points in between. The international road beckoned with some of the highlights being the Maverick Festival, and The Long Road Festival in the UK, Live at Heart in Sweden, Camden Club and The Bedford in London, UK and multiple appearances around the UK. Drew is thrilled to make his first appearance at the infamous Green Note in
London on June 25th as the kick off to his 2023 European tour.
Refreshingly honest, defiantly original and always mercurial and insightful, Drew’s music is sure to connect and resonate.
